Dal was going to be a butterfly.
I was going to use the few leftover fabrics from my handmade butterfly themed belly dance costume and create an ethereal butterfly girl. It was going to have an embroidered wing-patterned bustie and a wind skirt and sequined fascinator…
The album of making that costume is over here.
That’s simply not where this project went.
Here’s Dal, still without a wig attached, last night. I started by making her a shift dress from a funky Liberty Art fabric scrap. It wasn’t enough so I added a ruffle. The ruffle could be better constructed but it gives the whole dress a different shape that I love.
It’s giving me a funky Art Gallery Woman vibe. I dipped into my stash of beads and fixings and made her a chunky necklace and two bracelets.
She’s temporarily wearing “Eri’s” shoes. Eri seems to be the Daiso 100yen store knockoff Ricca-chan. The outfit I picked up is too short but will give me scale information. The shoes are generic but I can spray them and detail them a bit. She may also need me to make her stockings and a wide mod headband (or hat) and a great coat or cardigan.
She also needs her wig. I love her bald but she has wigmark craters where her former wig was attached.
